virtual mizzen?


More Rules!

We like this one, ’cause when was the last time you thought about a “Virtual Mizzen”?? 

Was trying to figure out how to set a deeper Mizzen staysail/spinnaker for VMG running that would not conflict with the backstay on my yawl.

Looked but could not find a rule prohibiting flying a sail with the head from a strop midway on the Backstay, (hauled up by halyard on Main, opposed by a downhaul) or hauled to a low friction ring seized on there. tacked to weather of the main boom and sheeted to stern.

Effect would be to create a Virtual Mizzen.

Is there a rule?
